Diamond Cut

find the perfect diamond

Not to be confused with the shape of a diamond, cut refers to a diamond’s facets, proportions, symmetry and polish. These things determine the depth of brilliance and sparkle a diamond has. When properly cut, a diamond will refract the most amount of light possible, creating the internal fire and shine that distinguish a diamond’s beauty. For example, a round brilliant diamond is composed of a top crown and bottom pavilion. The proportional relationship (width versus depth) between these two components will ultimately determine how well light reflects and refracts within the diamond.

Light is lost out the sides, causing the diamond to lose brilliance.
Reflects nearly all light that enters the diamond, bringing its brilliance into view.
Light escapes out the bottom, causing the diamond to appear dark and dull.
